OARS welcome crew

Thank you to everyone who came out to participate in our Open Boathouse event on August 20, 2022! It was a beautiful day, and we were thrilled to welcome you in.

We hope you enjoyed the tours of the boathouse, learning how to erg, and maybe even getting on the water! The rowers had a great time (Honk 4 OARS!) and we are honored that so many new rowers have signed up to join the crew.

We can't wait to do it again soon, but in the meantime, here are a few videos and photos courtesy of a few Crew Moms. Also check out the great coverage from the West Orange Times & Observer!

You'll "flip" for what happened in Daytona!

Buckley was racing in a single in choppy water that was especially difficult to navigate due to the wake of huge ships passing by the racing lanes on the river. The sun was blazing, face-melting-hot, as only Florida can do. Rowers arrived at 7am to warm up and then rowed out to the start to wait 45 minutes before their brief explosive row for possible gold, silver or bronze glory.
